A FOX-CEPTIONAL Feast

Mrs Fox (1)Written by Bridget Waters, illustrated by Athalia McIntyre
Inspired by Fantastic Mr Fox 

 

Serves two Large Foxes, four Small Foxes and 26 (somewhat unexpected) guests.

Darlings, take three plump juicy hens. Plucked. Four young ducks, lovely and fat. Three of the finest geese. A side of bacon. And three magnificent hams.

Smother everything in goose fat. Roast, basting regularly.

For the vegetarians? Let’s not make a fuss. Gently simmer ten bunches of carrots in lightly salted water.

Meanwhile, hollow a large dining room out of the earth. Construct a dining table and chairs to seat 32. Make sure guests don’t eat each other.

MY HUSBAND IS A FANTASTIC FOX.

And me? I’m FOX-CEPTIONAL.

      Thank you, Mavis. I want Mrs Fox’s frock.

      No need to thank me for the carrots 😉

    ‘Make sure guests don’t eat each other.’ Words of wisdom Bridget – thank you for a fox-ceptional piece of writing…
